Monday brings us our music class with Ms. Moran. She began our time today by teaching the students a classic American folk dance, Alabama Gal. As so often happens in upper grades with this kind of music, the hand touching between partners made some students act silly. But they still had a lot of fun.
We then went on to work on ABA form and adding ostinati and alternative melodies to make a simple piece out of a melody.
After lunch we painted our almost-dry relief maps of California. Some came our quite nicely indeed.
We took math tests today and these are graded on on the grade book.
Homework: (1) Write spelling words 1-5 ten times each in cursive. Also create an original sentence for each word. (2) Make a chart to sort the spelling words into letter-sound categories. The patterns are o, _ow, o_e, oa_, and _oe. (3) Do pages 58, 59-, and 60 in the Practice book. (4) Do the science review crossword. (5) Do the Four Times One 1 multiplication practice paper.
